ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (WHAS11) – A Good Samaritan in Elizabethtown ends up in the hospital after the man he's trying to help attacks him.

Police said they responded to a fight at an apartment complex on Westport Road just after midnight on Dec. 12.

When they arrived, they found 32-year-old Stefan Batts and another man who had a large wound on his face. That man told police he found Batts stumbling in the parking lot and was trying to help him when Batts suddenly turned on him, biting into his face.

That man was taken to University Hospital, and Batts is now charged with assault.

It's unclear whether Batts was under the influence when the attack happened.
